If you’re anything like us, your summer has just gone by in an endless blur of BBQs, happy hours, and gelato. But now, the fun is over and you’re most likely feeling a little worse for wear from too much rose, too many late nights, plus the impending doom of endless cold months is just on the horizon.
But it’s not too late to make amends. In fact, Autumn is the perfect time to get back into some healthy(ish) routines before winter really kicks in and all you want to do is eat pasta and drink hot cocoa.
To get things started, we’ve rounded up a selection of our favourite simple Autumn meal-prep lunches. Make the most of the cosy Sunday afternoons and warm up your kitchen by cooking up a storm and you’ll have lunch (or dinner) ready for the week ahead:
Spicy Chicken, Roasted Lemon Broccoli and Caramelised Sweet Potato.
This healthy, gluten-free, dairy-free, and low carb meal prep lunch bowl is so simple but so pretty, thanks to a mix of colors—bright green broccoli, deep orange spicy sweet potatoes, red apples, and crispy chicken. Get the recipe here.
